This weekend we’ll take a look at the College World Series through the WPW lens. Today, part 1 (because I’m up in Tahoe and we’re getting on a boat). All photos are from College Baseball Daily, which has done a bang-up job of recapping the tournament in photos and words.
Indiana catcher Kyle Schwarber wearing a rarely seen set of adidas catcher’s gear, unavailable online in his design but there are alternatives.
Indiana infielder/catcher Chad Clark with a nice set of the adidas Excelsior Pro batting gloves, available online.
Pants up with the adidas Excelsior Pro cleats is a nice look. You have to hunt for red online, but the model is available in more standard colors.
A few Louisville guys were wearing these Louisville Slugger batting gloves, which we’ve never seen before and couldn’t find anything on. If anybody has any info or closer looks at these e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can achieve WPW immortality in an updated post.
Not the best shot of Louisville catcher Kyle Gibson’s hand skills, but its a good look at his TPX Pulse gear, which is available online in some great colors. If you didn’t know, we did an entire feature on Louisville’s gear. Check that out here.
Posted this one for no other reason than that mohawk on Mike White. Wow.
Mississippi State P Trevor Fitts rocking the new adidas adizero 5-Tool 2.5, which doesn’t have a release date, but stay tuned to WPW for details as they become available.
Mississippi State OFer Derrick Armstrong rocking the custom gloves Easton hooked up once they made it to the CWS. A nice look below:
Mississippi State is one of the Easton teams debuting the Mako, a bat Easton has been pushing hard on social media. No word on a release date, but we can expect more details as the summer rolls on. Also check the Evoshield Camo Series leg guard.
A member of the NC State Wolfpack wearing the adidas adizero 5-Tool 2s in red and an Evoshield wristguard (you can get them custom-numbered at that link).
NC State’s Logan Rutledge with the Evoshield Pro batting gloves, available but not in NC State’s exclusive colors.
NC State’s Grant Clyde with the custom leg guard only given to the original Evo teams.
NC State’s Bryan Adametz swinging the Rawlings Trio bat, to be released in the fall. According to our source with Rawlings, the Trio is launching this fall (October/November). It will be available in both an end loaded (33/30 and 34/31) and balanced model (32/29, 33/30, 34/31). The trio features a 3-piece design with Rawlings patented pOp™ technology, the Comp-Lite endcap and now a Comp-Lite handle.
